Hadracha Leadership Program
Hadracha is Midrasha's Jewish leadership track for 10th, 11th and 12th grade teens. Hadrachaniks learn facilitation and leadership skills, create and lead retreat activities and build an awesome community of teen leaders in Midrasha. Some training topics include: public speaking, curriculum development, t'fillah (prayer) leadership, peer-counseling and team building. Hadracha is a starting point for young Jewish leaders; many Hadracha alumni return to become staff members at the Midrasha campuses and/or on retreats, many bring leadership to their post-high school communities and everyone learns and grows together. You can sum up Hadracha in three words: Midrasha's leadership rockstars.
